Hoya EVO Antistatic Protector Filter Reviews

Excellent

True to the words describe. Highly recommended.

I can barely see it, so I know it has good coatings

I've been using these clear filters on all my lenses of whatever size. Unfortunately I can't always find the exact size I need, so I have to substitute with another brand. Other brands are sometimes as good but not often. They fit well, and the coatings are so good that I can barely see the protector when it is mounted on the lens. The antistatic aspect seems to keep the filter cleaner too. I have not seen any impact on image quality. I prefer a clear filter rather than a UV filter in order to avoid any issues with color, relative to not using a filter at all. This way, my lens works at its best.

Good glass deserves excellent protection. It's much cheaper to replace a protective filter than replace an expensive piece of glass that you love! If I'd only . . .

If you have ever had an accident (tripod leg slipped) and your camera fell, this can be a lifesaver. Been there, done that. Saved the day. Plus you're cleaning the filter and not the glass in the lens. No dust, no sand, no sea spray.

These are the best I've found

Highly durable and they seem to stay cleaner than other filters. I try to get these whenever I need a clear protector filter, but occasionally they aren't available in the size I need, so I can't use them. I prefer clear protector filters instead of UV filters, because they will not affect the color balance at all.

Great Clarity!

A real step up for my old Sigma 400mm telephoto lens just adapted for use with my Sony alpha6000 digital camera. The 72mm front element is too big and valuable to leave unprotected and this Hoya clear protector was just the answer. Excellent light admittance made this a great choice for this mid-quality slower lens. Photos are sharp and permit greater latitude for f-stop choices and resultant depth of field. Great purchase!

Maybe it works as should.

It's well made I use it as an always on protection. I shoot on the beach daily and needed an easy to clean filter. This wipes clean very easily that's my main reason for a filter.

Meets its needs...

Nothing glamorous; it's just a utilitarian lens protector. Fortunately, haven't had to test its effectiveness, particularly with dropped lens. Feel confident with lens protector in place.

question

How good is it? Has anybody used it?
Asked by: Edwin V.
I have one on my Tokina 11-20 and it works fine. I chose it because of the coatings on each side as wide angle lenses can be prone to flair when shooting into or near the sun. I have other Hoya filters on other lenses that I am very pleased with. 52mm and 77mm.
